    LOL....I have a hard enough time with my own girls, but the way her anus is tucked up under her tail, I'd say she isn't. Sorry :(

    I think she looks really pregnant. I would say within a month of kidding. her vulva is very swollen and the area ia "velvety" looking.

    No offense Liz, but I'm rooting for Beth on this one! :thumbup: I just got back from my local farmer's association. I was trying to find out if they knew anything about a blood test for goats. They didn't. But while I was there, a precious elderly gentleman came in with his granddaughter, and he is a long time goat herder. He said he has a 98% accuracy rate with "dowsing." He holds a chain over the goats belly, right side first, and if it moves clockwise its a girl, if it moves counter clockwise its a boy, if it swings back and forth it's one of each, if it doesn't move at all, there are no babies at all! I tried it, of course, as soon as I got home, and it seemed to move back and forth consistently. And it didn't matter which way the goat was standing, it always swung perpendicular with her spine. Now, I don't know if this really works, but there it is.

    Has anyone else ever heard of dowsing or had any luck with it?
